|David Tennant and Patrick Stewart star in this critically acclaimed production of Shakespeare’s masterpiece from Britain’s renowned Royal Shakespeare Company. No recent stage production in Britain has attracted the excitement and nearly unanimous critical praise as this Hamlet. Tennant's interpretation was recognized as defining the role fora generation, and Stewart’s complex Claudius won the Olivier award, Britain’s highest stage honor. In this specially-shot screen version, filmed on location rather than in the theater, Tennant and Stewart reprise their roles. Dynamic, exciting and contemporary, it breathes newlife into Shakespeare's greatest play.|
Editor's NoteThis stage production from Britain presents classically-trained thespian David Tennant in one of his most acclaimed roles - as William Shakespeare's Hamlet. As produced by Gregory Doran for the Royal Shakespeare Company in 2008, it also stars Patrick Stewart as Claudius, Pennie Downie as Gertrude and Mariah Gale as Ophelia.
